Yes, in most cases, you can.  You will want to make sure you are running the latest SL3 version.  Also, certain features are not supported.  If those unsupported features are present, 2 things could happen - 1.  SL3 will open the file, but you will not have access or be able to edit that feature - Example -  Modern Player is replaced with Classic or the random number variable triggers work but are grayed out when attempting to edit.  2. Use of newer features - like the Slide Number Variables - currently will prevent the course from opening in SL3.

Hi there, Betty! I'm sorry you see that error!

These troubleshooting steps have been successful when that message appears:

  • Ensure you're working locally (typically the C: drive)
  • Close any other instances of Storyline in your Task Manager
  • Reboot the machine
  • Copy and rename the .story file in File Explorer, and then open the new file from there

Let us know how you go after these tips, and we'll explore our next steps from there!
